    would be common courtesy to give you a bit of notice, what would happen if you couldn't attend?

    My technicians would have been required to turn up.

    I didn't want to ask them to do something I was unwilling to do myself so I did the work.

    Sounds confusing I know but it makes sense to me [somehow!]

    Dave, what I do is get my techs to go around last thing, check PC, IWB and sound in each class. We got them a standalone mono inkjet which is installed on an old laptop, which we set up in our staff room. I reset their profile and password and after that we only go in first thing to sort out screen cloning and leave approx 20 mins each day. Suppose were are lucky as myself and my full time tech live within a 3 to 4 min walk from the school.

    It takes me about half an hour to drive in if the traffic is OK. I wanted to be on site for any problems that might have arisen rather that have them wait for me to drive in.

    As it turned out there were a few problems. Yesterday we had a power cut 10 minutes before the morning sessions started. Not a major problem normally but the RCD switch for the server room tripped out when the power came back. The UPS kept the servers up but the switches in the server room had no power.
